If you have several fax machines, and employees constantly doing manual faxing, you can save a lot of time by utilizing a central OpenText Fax Server (formerly RightFax) or GFI FaxMaker. GFI is a cost-effective solution for businesses with less than 75 employees. You can use a modem bank connected to the Fax Server, or a Digital Fax Card for higher volume implementations. If you have even more daily fax traffic, or need to integrate fax capability into your Applications, OpenText Fax Server is an excellent solution.
